Election Day 2016

For Election Day 2016. Vote, yes, definitely, but don't leave love outside the voting booth.

Love Outside the Lines
Lynda Allen

While love is often jubilantly colorful,
as far as I know it’s not limited to one color,
not red
or blue.
I will color outside the lines that have been drawn around love
and doodle my way to you.
Lines on paper, check marks in boxes cannot limit my love.
I will love you tomorrow as I did today,
even though I know it’s sometimes challenging
to love outside the lines.
I hope you will offer the same to me.
And don’t forget that when we allow our colors to blend,
we create something new.
